I would like to let you know about the terrible service that I received at the Intercontinental in Tampa, FL. I am an IHG Platinum member for over 10 years and stay at hotels over 150 nights a year. First, check in took 45 mi – the wait was half an hour and the actual process 15 min. The reservation...

Stayed here recently for one night. Location is great; right off I-275, located at Kennedy and Westshore. Across the street from Westshore Mall. Minutes from Tampa airport and the Howard Franklin Bridge. The Shula's Steakhouse downstairs is a plus. Tons of great restaurants in walking distance. Rooms were decent and the staff was great. But, as a generalization, I am...

The InterContinental is a beatiful hotel, but it is not my favorite. Based on reviews, we requested an outside view with a king bed and was told none were available, so me an my husband ended up with two double beds. This was not acceptable, but it had to do because I knew I would not be comfortable looking out...

The check in was excellent. We arrived early and given drink coupons. The service very good and room clean. The view from both windows looked into the floors of two levels of parking garage. Very disappointing for expensive hotel. Would not stay again.

I attended a conference here. The guest rooms and conference facility are very nice, clean, updated. The hotel provided meals and it was all delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. The shuttle to/from the airport was great. I would definitely stay here again.

I shouldn’t complain about anything since they upgraded us to the Buccaneer Suite, Room 917, which is one of their Presidential Suites, and I believe, their top level room, but I think they need some constructive feedback…..
